What does a Temporary Resident Permit allow you to do
After successfully getting your Temporary Resident Permit application approved in Canada this ensures the government’s permission for you to stay within the country, during the time requested and specifically designated in your permit. The permit also outlines your expiration date in which defines the time you must leave the country. You can always attempt to re-apply in order to continue your stay in Canada, before your valid Temporary Resident Permit actually expires. In order to truly be a candidate for a temporary resident permit, be it to apply in the first place or to simply extend your stay, you must exemplify that you as an individual have strong ties to your country of citizenship and will not objectify against leaving Canada and returning at a moments notice. Failing to prove any of these aforementioned necessities can allow for an immigration officer to revoke your permit at any given moment.
By being given your Temporary Resident Permit you can come to Canada and complete the tasks you have requested entry for. These requests could possibly be a family or friend’s wedding or funeral in which your attendance was requested, to visit a sick relative, study at a Canadian educational institution, or for tourism within the great North.
